Abstract

Autoimmune pancreatitis is a recently described chronic inflammatory disease of the pancreas which appears to be part of a systemic disorder characterized by a lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate in affected organs that is rich in IgG4 positive cells. The inflammatory component of the disease appears to resolve with steroid treatment, though relapses do occur. Here we briefly discuss the role of steroid therapy in the management of autoimmune pancreatitis.
